Python + Java knowledge

Hi,

I've learnt and used Java and Python for a few years now, on bits of my
thesis work etc etc. I will have to say that I love both languages and
the possibilities they can provide. More recently, due to the toolkit
that I use, I've been using Python. And I found that my Jva knowledge
slacks a little. So, I'm looking for some tips on how to maintain the
knowledge on both areas.

Has anyone done it?

Thanks
Maurice

I would say to look for some of those "what's different in xxx" files
and go from there.

Thanks. Maybe I should say that I knew and had used both Python and Java
and had used them in one way or another. I also knew and had used
Jython. I am more interested about how both can complement each other.
My problem is that as I used one of the two in a project (say Python),
my knowledge on the other one (Java) slacks off a bit and finds that I
have to re-learn parts of Java if I need it again... Is this a problem
of no solution or are there some tips to reduce the rate of slack off in
knowledge?

I must say that Python/Jython/Java package rings so homely that I will
love to keep.

Thanks

I hear yoga is good for this kind of thing.
